I have noticed a greater level of tolerance and sheer generosity that we have shown to each other since 9/11. Folks get involved now, to a greater degree, when those around them need help. I have noticed a change in my own tolerance level, and I am happy about that - I am sure those around me are as well. I think we are going to be ok. This is another one of those times when we will rally together, and come out stronger - as a nation, as neighbors, as individuals. That might be idealistic thinking, but sometimes, it just works out that way. May those who protect us stay safe and out of harms way.
